I used to pick up my copies of 2600 at a local B&N years ago...

Because the guy who finds the BFG9000 he doesn't need/want is ALWAYS going to put it on the cash market, not the in-game one.
Why? This means that you are less likely to get ripped off since Blizzard will be running it versus the third party sites where you are most likely getting scammed from. Why would you think the second choice is better?
Frankly because I don't care if people doing an explicitly forbidden activity get ripped off.
Wrapping it into the game likely means that all the best items will get put in the cash auction house, and the in-game-gold AH will only have lesser items.
I'd love a separate server (cluster) for those who wanted to play in the real money economy.
Fuck everything about this...
I kind of have to agree...
I was a hardcore D2 gamer, almost failed out of college because of that game, and I've been looking forward to D3 Very Much.
But real money? No. I play games as an escape from thinking about things like my bank account.
Bliz, please rethink this.
Let a real money secondary economy evolve, but for the love of Pete don't enshrine it in the game.
What things would you introduce high school juniors and seniors to that would interest them in IT? Any ideas on activities I could set up that might be fun for them to try out themselves? I was thinking of setting up a few VM sandboxes for them to mess up and fix, but that's all I've got so far."

I have to agree.
Investigated this for my last job, we did in fact end up doing SATA 1TB disks in a fireproof safe in the server room, but we had a lot less data to deal with than you do.
LTO5 should be out this year with 1.5TB native space, and it compresses very well. You could probably get one of your clients per tape.
LTO's got a long lifespan, and is readable with newer LTO tech for a few generations. There's a reason it's the industry standard backup these days.
It says so in the readme file, and it's a feature not a bug to keep you from hosing your system because you didn't read the readme...
When you first fire up the new VHD it replaces the disk ID with a new one so that it's unique. This causes much trouble if the computer has two of the same disk ID at the same time when it goes to change one, as you might imagine.
Same boat here. I have no certs, I've just been working in IT for over 10 years now with my 1337 skillz.
If a potential employeer overlooked my resume because it doesn't have any certs on it, it's likely not a place I'd want to be working anyway.
Except that you're talking about a series hybrid drive, and only the Chevy Volt works that way at the moment.
The Insight and the Prius are both parallel drive hybrids, which means the gas engine turns the wheels as well as powers up the batteries. The electric turns the wheels sometimes. The Volt's big thing is that it's a series hybrid, the drive is always electric and the gas engine runs at its high-efficiency speed to charge the batteries, then shuts off again.
Meaning that your comment would be correct if all hybrids were series hybrids, but as of now your comment would only apply to the Volt which isn't in production yet.
